Roxberg Takes Down Another School Record at Drake Relays

3 years 8 months 3 weeks ago April 27, 2013 Apr 27, 2013 Saturday, April 27 2013 Saturday, April 27, 2013 11:04:21 PM CDT in Tiger Talk

DES MOINES, IA - Record performances continue to fall on day two of the Drake Relays with Laura Roxberg smashing through her own School Record in the 1500m to round out the weekend in a huge way for the Tigers. She is joined by freshmen Markesh Woodson and Tony Carodine, and junior Chris Spudic on the PR board after today's events.

Roxberg took the lead from the gun and maintained the position until the bell lap, finishing a close second behind Georgia's Carly Hamilton. Both athletes ran under the previous Drake Relays record, and posted the two top times in the NCAA and SEC as of the most current TFRRS (Track & Field Results Reporting System) rankings. Roxberg's 4:13.53 finish surpasses her previous school record of 4:16.71 by three seconds, made last year when she won the Big 12 Championships. This is the second time this year that Roxberg has broken her own school record in an event. The first came in February when she took the win in the mile at the UW Husky Classic, crossing in 3:34.59.

Starting the day off, though, for the Tigers was junior Chris Spudic in the 3k Steeplechase. Spudic powered through a hit barrier to finish in 9:12.56, bettering his previous PR and Missouri Relays meet record of 9:13.46, made earlier this season.

Next on the track was Woodson, who matched up well in a heat featuring Olympian and fellow-SEC competitor Isiah Young, to finish 3rd with a new top mark of 10.28. Woodson, who had hit the track earlier in the day as a member of the 12th place sprint medley squad, battled it out in the pack to move himself up into the top fifteen in the nation according to current rankings. This also puts him at No. 6 in the SEC and moves him up into the No. 6 spot on the All-Time Top Ten list.

Rounding out the day's PR performances was freshman Tony Carodine, who lined up in a star-studded field in the triple jump finals, including London Gold Medalist Christian Taylor. Carodine came out strong, hitting his PR mark of 15.53m (50-11.50) to finish 4th in the university division, 7th overall. Today also marks the entrance of Carodine into the Missouri All-Time Top Ten lists, where he lands at No. 7.

Up next for the Tigers is the SEC Championships at home in the Audrey J. Walton Stadium from May 9 - May 12.
